With the release of Windows Server 2012 on September 4th and recent announcements by VMware at VMworld it was time to see how we are doing from a technical perspective.
We have released a paper in which we compare Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V Server 2012 with VMware vSphere Hypervisor and VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus.
In this paper, we have looked at a significant number of the new capabilities that are available within Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, across 4 key investment areas:
Across each of these areas, we’ve detailed how Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V offers more scale, a more comprehensive array of customer-driven features and capabilities, and a greater level of extensibility and flexibility than the standalone VMware vSphere Hypervisor or VMware vSphere 5.1. With features such as Hyper-V Replica, cluster sizes of up to 64 nodes and 8,000 virtual machines, Storage and Shared-Nothing Live Migration, the Hyper-V Extensible Switch, Network Virtualization, and powerful guest clustering capabilities, it’s clear to see that Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V offers the most comprehensive virtualization platform for the next generation of cloud-optimized infrastructures.
